Lots of people and lots to enjoy. The stands offered fresh produce, fresh baked goods, local wine, local beer, and local vodka--all with life music played on the background.

The ferry from Halifax lands here so you can sit on one of the many benches and watch it dock as well as all the other activities in the harbour. Watch out for the goods train which runs through the area.
